Re: pdfs with all words crammed against the next word with no spaces between

Here is a message that I sent out in 2016 about this issue:
I had a long chat session with the Adobe help team yesterday.
It seems that the problem arises when a document created in some other editor is saved as PDF this problem can arise resulting in spaces not appearing to be standard ones under ISO (or ASCII 32).
With the help of the Adobe support team, I used “adobe Acrobat Pro DC” to reprocess the offending document by printing it “as Adobe” and saving the output document to the hard disk rather than actually printing it. The spaces were all present and no misspellings occurred.
The help team assured me that this problem arises from outside editors and not from within Adobe. Therefore, Adobe can do nothing about it.
This worked today. However, I cannot get it to do the job tonight! Strange!
I don’t have Acrobat Pro DC on my machine. I will have to download a sample of this program and try again.
All the best,

Thanks for the idea. I just tried to do this using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and I can't seem to get it right. All I get is a blank file.
Can you tell me what settings you used?
